  Lower Court Decision on Probable Cause - Tho-- (with Other Defendants)

Some of these defendants got their cases dismissed, for lack of probable cause, and got a detailed written decision.  (This is not an appellate case.)

Because it is not an appellate case, this decision cannot be cited as precedent in California courts, except maybe before the same judge who decided it.   But there is nothing stopping defendants elsewhere from using the same arguments used here, or from citing the same published cases the decision relied upon.
